Sports Camps

Sports Camps

The University of Leeds understands the importance of keeping children active and hosts two holiday camps for children to get involved in.

Hockey camps are held at Sports Park Weetwood, one of the University’s large sports facilities three miles from the centre of Leeds.

Kings Camps, a UK charity dedicated to developing children through sport, provide fun activity day camps for children and young people. Activities on campus take place at The Edge, the University’s state-of-the-art health and fitness centre.

Summer Hockey Camps

A week of fun on the hockey pitch for those aged 11- 17. Whether you’re new to the sport, or already a hockey pro, the camps provide an opportunity to improve your skills and knowledge of the game in a safe and fun environment.

Our team of experienced International and UKCC qualified coaches will provide a structured hockey programme, with an emphasis on both individual improvement and fun. Make sure you book early to avoid disappointment!
